Scott W. Wright, partner in the Faegre & Benson employment practice, has been ranked among the nation's 100 most powerful employment attorneys in a Human Resource Executive® special section published in June.
As leader of the firm's business immigration law practice, Wright brings 22 years of experience to assisting global companies with U.S. work petitions, I-9 compliance, and international visas. He also provides counsel on immigration law issues that arise in employment decisions, mergers and acquisitions, government audits and investigations, and labor law disputes. Wright is a frequent author and speaker on employment-related immigration topics.
To be considered for the Nation's Most Powerful Employment Attorneys listing, candidates must demonstrate significant and substantive experience in their practice, have written authoritative articles, and receive exemplary evaluations by clients and peers.
Wright is the only immigration law attorney included in the employment attorney listing—a fact that may reflect the firm's comprehensive approach to employment law. With 60 lawyers who specialize in issues such as employee mobility, compensation, and benefits, Faegre & Benson provides clients integrated employment law representation.
Lawyers included in the Nation's Most Powerful Employment Attorneys listing were chosen from more than 2,500 submissions and through independent research. Each year, the guide combines the resources of Human Resource Executive with those of Lawdragon, a Los Angeles-based online legal news and lawyer-ranking site.
